'Tis the season to let ourselves slip slightly south of the equator of our own equilibrium and drift every so smoothly into a surreal place where reality is not entirely welcome. Here is a list of movies I love to immerse myself in to rekindle my inner dreamer, my romantic unrealist, my awe-inspired private child who still twirls in the meadow and blows bubbles and watches the waves and winds in the trees.
I highly recommend you watch as many of these leading up to Xmas and even thereafter as possible.
I think you'll find if you curl up with some hot chocolate with equal parts extra marshmallows and mush-mellows, and let yourself cry a little not in sadness but in celebration of life, love, hope and heaven you can experience a deep degree of revival.
